Week 7: 20th October

The half-term has arrived and this week has been a really busy one with lots of work on our chosen focus country Egypt for One World Week.  It was lovely to see so many of you this morning at our harvest assembly and afterwards in class.

We started the week using picture prompts to help us use description, action, dialogue and rhetorical questions to write some interesting short pieces.  Our Egyptian spellings for the week showed how the children earned stickers by spelling such words as pyramid, hieroglyphics, mummification…!

In Maths we used hieroglyphics to help calculate answers and write our own number sentences.  We baked ‘Cleopatra’s Palace Bread’……..using honey and dried fruit.  Did you sample some when you came today?

The children created their own Egyptian jewellery, created 3D dangling camels, cartoush art and this afternoon had an opportunity to create 3D Egyptian art.

Have a restful half-term.
Miss Varga and Mrs McNamara
